A big thanks to all of you who have linked up your "ahhh-MAZING" projects so projects far. I want to invite all of you who haven't played yet to join the fun. And I've to invite those of you who have to come play some more and check out what everyone else has made. Some really awesome fox-themed projects have been linked up!

Fabulous Friday: Getting Fancy

And we meet again, Moxie Fabbers.
Can you possibly handle one more Fabulous Friday challenge?
I sure hope so. I always enjoy seeing what you all make!
Your challenge this week. should you choose to accept it, is to make a paper crafted project inspired by this picture.


Take color inspiration. Take design inspiration. Take product (...hmm) inspiration. Take some kind of inspiration from it and make something. It's that easy. You in? 
I'm once again going to give you a little extra time to tackle this challenge because... a little extra time is good, right? Be sure to post your completed project on your blog by midnight EST on Wednesday, Sept. 24th. 
Then, click on the title of your post, copy the URL at the top and link it using the Mr. Linky below.
Be sure to link back to this post and be sure to include in your post how you were inspired. (Just so we all know how you were inspired.)
By the way, if you don't have a blog, you can post your project to this flickr group and link it to Mr. Linky as soon as you've grabbed the URL.
I'll pick one participant at random to score something fun from the Moxie Fab World prize drawer as thank you for playing along. That lucky person will be announced on Friday, Sept. 26th!
(By the way, who was the random winner of last week's Fabulous Friday Challenge? Well, that would be Nicki Scheck! Hooray! Nicki, please drop me an email at teriishere AT Gmail.com.)

The Drool List No. 546

Hi, Moxie Fabbers!
Can we talk? 
Let's talk drool list.
Specifically, let's talk about the paper crafting kind of drool list.
Here are five things I'm really digging right now.


Let's just put it out there: I love EVERYTHING in this collection. It has a real "urban cool" feel. There's city-inspired patterned papers.  (Hello, skyline paper! I think love you!). There's hip font treatments. There's modern, geometric, graphic patterns. It's all, all so good. 


Not a fan of scary Halloween stuff? I'll tell you a secret: I'm not really either. When it comes to Halloween, I brake for happy stuff! And the sweet Ghouls & Goodies collection from Doodlebug Design is so, so happy. I especially dig these Mini Doodle-pops Stickers! (Hello, little pumpkins! You are adorable!)  

A totally cool thing about these stamps is 100% of all the profits from these stamps are going right to Operation Write Home. If you aren't familiar with Operation Write Home, it's a non-profit organization works with folks to get their handmade cards into the hands of military troops that they can use them to send to their families and friends. Buying a new stamp set and supporting a good cause at the same time? I'm there! 

Speaking of Avery Elle, I'm dying to get my hands on this stamp set and have my crafty way with it. See, I'm really digging globes right now. In fact, I "might" have gasped when I stumbled on the globes in this Etsy shop, but I digress.

5. Rub-ons and Stickers from the Shimelle collection from American Crafts
The rub-ons had me with these words: "Glitter is always an option." And the stickers? Well, it was the super cute illustrations of multiple cameras, a double decker bus and a stack of teacups that lured me in!

So what's on your drool list? Do tell.

Dreaming of craft supplies,
Teri 

PS. Come play! You have until midnight EST on Sunday, Sept. 14th, to link up your projects to the Foxy Foxes Challenge. Thirty awesome Moxie Fabbers have taken the plunge so far! Hope you will take it next!

Oh My Moxie Fab!



Their love story was a unique one.
They were tied together by bling and pink plastic (and a fear of lawn mowers).

To be continued,
Teri 

PS. Can't get enough flamingoes? Check out the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set from Reverse Confetti? So fab! And how about this cute flamingo-themed paper from Carta Bella?! Cuteness.

Fun Finds on Friday

Friday. Friday! FRIDAY!
Let's hear it for FRIDAY! Yes. Yes, indeed. I love this day!
So how about about some Fun Finds in honor of it?!
On your mark. Get set. GO!

Fun Find #1
There are projects. And then there are PROJECTS!
I think this page that Paige Evans shared over on the American Crafts blog is one of the latter.


The colors. The letters. The delicious mixture of patterns. I really could go on and on about how much I dig it. It really is so, so fun! Bravo, Paige! 

Fun Find #2
Are you always taking pictures? Are you wanting to capture in photos what's happening in your world right now? Head on over to the Studio Calico blog and check out this post from Maggie Massey.


Maggie has put together a great list of prompts to inspire you to take pictures of everything from yourself to your belongings. What are you waiting for?! Go. Fast. Just come back, k? I'd miss you. (Wink!)

Fun Find #3
Lean in real close, friends.
I am going to level with you.
My name is Teri, and I am a sequin addict.
Raise your hand if you can relate. Yep. I thought there were some fellow addicts out there!
Good thing the folks over at Neat and Tangled have our backs! They've put together a great blog post with lots of ideas for storing sequins.


Fun Find #4
How fun is this stamp set?


A lot of fun if you ask this stamp loving girl!
The set is new, designed by the one and only stamper extraordinaire Tim Holtz and available only through Sept. 30th (or while supplies last) through Simon Says Stamp! as part of their STAMPtember festivities. I think I am going to need it. Yep. I think I just might.

Fun Find #5
Looking to get your craft on this weekend? We've got two fantastic challenges going on here on Moxie Fab World.
There's the Foxy Foxes Challenge, which ends on Sunday, Sept. 14th. And then there's the Fabulous Friday: Graphic Garland Challenge, which ends on Wednesday, Sept. 10th.
Everyone is welcome to play! I hope you will consider joining the fun.
By the way, here's a cool card Stasia Sloma linked up to the Fabulous Friday: Graphic Garland Challenge.


Love it, Stasia!

Oh. Hey. One more thing before I go.

Trend Talk: Hipster Glasses

Hey there, Moxie Fabbers!
Let's talk about trends for a minute or two.
Here is one I am "seeing" quite a bit lately: Hipster glasses.
I think hipster glasses is a pretty "spectacular" trend, if you catch my drift.
I mean, guys, check this out.

They are on critters.

Talk about a hoot! 

They are dressing up pillows.

"I can see clearly now."

They are showing up on walls.

They are gracing coffee mugs.

(Coffee Mug - Source)

And they are even showing up on things for baby.

(Pajamas - Source)

Babies need hip things too, you know?!

And take a quick "look" around the paper crafting world and you will "see" some hipster glasses there too.




So talk to me, friends. Are you into the hipster glasses thing? Or are you "looking" past it toward some other trend? Do tell.

Yours in trend-watching fun,
Teri
